If you're looking for something quiet and quaint this is a great place My wife and I played shuffleboard and pool in the game Room We sat by the fire for awhile and if you're a Broncos fan this is the place for you There is a Broncos man cave/TV Room If you would like to watch TV or you're there during the weekend to see a game My wife and I relaxed in the hot tub under the stars Even though it was cold outside and snow on the ground but no worries when you go back into your Room the floors are heated So it helps warm you right backup We are already planning our next trip there oh yea and great breakfast in the morning
I'm adding pictures but I forgot to take pics of the room and hot tub deck with the view
For some reason, the way Trip Advisor places hotels near Eldora or Nederland leads you to stay in Boulder or Central City, a LONG way from the ski resort. And, for some reason, it claims this Lodge is in Golden. So, ignore all that and just know that you are in for a treat if you stay at this place, and your 20 mins or less from Eldora Ski resort, with a view of the Continental Divide from the rooms and hot tubs. Rooms are very clean, beds comfortable, lounge and game room hip and laid back, roaring fire draws you in, and help yourself beer fridge (jot down your totals to have your card charged later) keeps you around. Breakfast is help yourself...and FANTASTIC. It’s home cooked and way more food than you’d expect in this type of place. There is one slightly negative comment...it’s more of a warning than a negative thing...the internet is not the best and there is no phone signal. Sooooo, don’t go there thinking you’ll do any significant work or stream shows, etc., but DO GO THERE with the idea in mind that you get a real break from the world back home. Disconnect and Live a little! You’re on VACATION!
